Giga Designs has introduced its latest single and dual processor
upgrades, the G-celerator AGP 7A series, which uses the latest Freescale G4 processors with 512KB on-chip L2 cache. The single processor version, which is available now, is compatible with the Power Mac Cube as well as all machines produced between the AGP (Sawtooth) and Quicksilver 2002 models. The dual processor edition, which will ship in early March, works with the range of all AGP (Sawtooth) and Gigabit Ethernet computers through Quicksilver 2002. A 1.6GHz dual processor upgrade for the Cube will be released at the same time.
The 1.8GHz single processor Cube upgrade includes a fan, but users who want to maintain silent operation can adjust the jumpers to make it run at 1.6GHz. On the dual processor side, a Cube VRM upgrade and low-speed fan kit are included. All of the new single processor upgrades are US$449 while the dual processor upgrades are $699 for the 1.8GHz version and $759 for the 1.6GHz Cube version. Mac OS X v10.3.5 is required.
